Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: favorite AUDs????? (6-24-70)

There's nothing better than a good audience tape...
Here are a bunch of favorites off the top of my head

One of the all time great Dead shows and all time great AUDs. Excellent clarity and crowd energy (unless you count the "WOO WOO" guy in Casey Jones)

Brilliant Jerry Moore recording. Check out DS>Spanish>US Blues. It'll knock your socks off.

Another nice '74 aud to show off the Wall of Sound in all its glory.

Fabulous Bob Menke recording of an interesting show while the band was on hiatus. Features an Eleven-esque jam out of Truckin'.

Show gets overlooked because there's no board available, but who needs a board when you have another excellent Bob Menke recording. The second set has to be heard to believed:
Terrapin>Playin>Franklins>Space>China Doll>NFA>Playin' Reprise. A Must Listen

Hot first set, especially Althea>LRR

Superb Rango Keshavan tape. Doesn't have as much of the crowd energy factor in it but a crystal clear representation of the band. Excellent Looks Like Rain, Lost Sailor>Saint and Playin>Crazy Fingers

Another great Rango Keshavan. Check out Bird Song and Let It Grow

Jerry's Coma Comeback. Not a really great show or great recording of the band but worth it for the crowd reactions in Touch of Grey and Candyman.

One of the great shows of the late 80's. This is a good if not great tape, clarity-wise, but the spine tingling crowd energy and emotion in Morning Dew through to the end is truly special.
